Lawn Fawn Party Animal Card

Hello everyone! I'm back again today with another watercolor card for the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop. I used one of the new stamp sets from Lawn Fawn called Party Animal. I just love all the little details in this stamp set and I had so much fun using my distress inks as watercolors!

To make my watercolor background I used Canson watercolor paper and Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, and Shaded Lilac. I put the ink on my Ranger craft mat and added a little water. Then I wet the watercolor paper down with a paintbrush and added the ink. Adding more water lightens the ink color to give the outcome I achieved.

I stamped my images from the Lawn Fawn Party Animal stamp set on the watercolor paper using StazOn ink. I used Distress Markers in Spun Sugar, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry,  Squeezed Lemonade, Dusty Concord, and Shaded Lilac to color my images in. On most of the images I just put a little ink on the inner stamp line and used a small paintbrush with water to draw the color in to the rest of the image. Them I cut out the shapes with the Lawn Fawn Party Animal dies.

I am also entering this card in the Lawnscaping Critters challenge. Check out all of the other fabulous entries here.

  12. The worst leaves to decay on your lawn are oak leaves. Oaks are big acid producers. Maple leaves are not so bad because they are thin and can mulch up easily and can even benefit the lawn. Oak leaves, on the other hand, are thick and more leathery.MAGIC CHEF Appliance Repair in Los Angeles
